Sol Kendamas is happy to announce that we will be kicking off 2022 with bang with Battle At The Border, the largest kendama competition in the Southeastern United States!
Battle at the Border 2022 will be held in person at Rocketown in Nashville, TN on January 28 & 29, so be sure to save the dates and expect an epic weekend of legendary kendama action.
All attendees must either sign up for a division or purchase a spectator pass. Check-in will be in person at Rocketown on both Friday January 28 and Saturday January 29. Upon check-in, everyone will receive an event exclusive BATB 2022 mask, dama strap/lanyard, and a raffle ticket.
If you are registering for multiple people, please check out separately so we know which player belongs in the correct division.
The competitions start on Friday, at 12pm, Saturday at 11am, and Sunday will be a jam day at the famous Parthenon. If you are traveling in this year, we suggest arriving on Thursday night and leaving on Sunday evening or Monday morning. The best airport to fly into is BNA, and we recommend looking at hotels or airbnbs between the airport, Rocketown, and the Parthenon.
There’s a $500 cash prize for the winner of the Pro Open. Additionally, there will be a Freestyle Invitational at the end of Day 1, where 16 invited players will compete for a $500 cash prize. The tournament is single-elimination, and will be judged by a panel of 3 legendary kendama players.
We will have more information about sponsors and a full event schedule soon, but know that Friday at 1pm, we have some really big video premieres lined up that you do not want to miss. Hope to see you there!
